Invitation to build a telescope class at Drake Planetarium

Want to know what special secrets may be hiding in the Milky Way or on Orion’s Belt? Then join us at Drake Planetarium when we teach you how to build your own telescope! We will give each parent-child team a Galileoscope, show you how to assemble it, and train you how to use it to observe the night sky. The Galileoscope is yours to keep.

Date & Time: Thursday, January 19, 2012; 7 - 9 p.m.
Where: Norwood High School at 2020 Sherman Ave.
Cost: Planetarium Members $35, Non-Members $45 for a parent-child team ; additional children can attend for a small fee.
Call 513-396-5578 to make your reservations. Must pre-register for this program. Space for 30 teams only, so reserve your spot today!

As part of our celebration of 400 Years of Astronomy, we are offering classes to families that are interested in a more personal encounter with our Solar System. So, on January 27, 2010, twenty-seven families came to our first "Build Your Own Telescope Class" to build their own Galilesoscope that they could take home and use to explore the Universe.
